    This is not going to be possible without cracking open XCode and modifying the window code for that, and having looked at that source code it is not going to be pretty.

    A far better option is to go onto the Adium forums and put in a request for that feature.

    You must be using a different version of Windows 7 than I am. In Windows 7 when I select another program the other program goes completely behind the new program I am running.

    Besides Adium on Mac I put a check mark on the line in the program's Preferences that says "Show Adium Status in menu bar". Then pop-outs come up when someone writes me.

    WindowShade X has a feature for letting you do this as well among other features like rolling up the window and making windows transparent. It recently got updated for Snow Leopard (10.6) support.
